#PDP is using blackmail to frustrate anti-graft war – #APC alleges } DailyPost

The All Progressives Congress, APC, has accused the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, of using “orchestrated attacks on the hugely successful war against corruption being waged by the President Muhammadu Buhari’s administration” to blackmail anti-corruption agencies.

A statement issued by the party’s National Secretary, Mai Mala Buni, says the APC was “aware of the plot by the PDP and their agents to stampede and blackmail anti-corruption agencies over ongoing corruption cases being investigated.”
It then asserted that the opposition party could not dictate to it how it should go about the “legitimate duty of catching looters of public funds.”

The statement reads, “In three orchestrated press statements issued on Friday, the Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu and Ekiti state governor, Ayodele Fayose among others, alleged plans by the APC and President Buhari’s administration to silence the opposition through a selective anti-corruption fight.
